FANTASTIC

Greg C., Newegg
22 December 2015
  • Summary: I spend more time looking for a CPU than any other component when switching from my old AMD board to the intel board. I read a lot of reviews about overclocking and battling heat with the IVY bridge and have had no problems.
  • Pros: Easy to OC. SOLID performance. Been using this 3 years.
  • Cons: Nothing so far.

Geez!

Ryan N., Newegg
13 December 2015
  • Summary: Overclocks like a beast! Have this thing running on a turbo boost overclock at 4.4ghz at 1.184v. This means the cpu will downclock to 1.6ghz when not under load. The max temp in normal use is 63c, when using prime or IBT the max is 74c. My cooler is an h100i.
  • Pros: overclocks like a beast. still runs as good today as it did when first bought
  • Cons: none.

Perfect for gaming

Travis F., Newegg
17 November 2015
  • Pros: I've had this CPU for more than 3 years and have never run into any issues with it. It is one of the best CPU's for gaming and is definitely the best bang for your buck.
  • Cons: Even with water cooling, this CPU seems to run a little on the hot side. It's never caused me issues. But it just gives me anxiety when it's running so hot.

No problems

Jade R., Newegg
23 January 2015
  • Summary: I've had this CPU for a while now. I primarily built this rig for gaming, and it has not disappointed me. For a year or so, I ran it at stock speeds. However, after buying a liquid cooling system, I used the Gigabyte EasyTuner 6 software to Overclock it to 4.2Ghz, and have not had any problems or...
  • Pros: It still works.
  • Cons: None that I can think of (or have the knowledge to detect)

Never had an issue

Jonathan G., Newegg
30 December 2014
  • Summary: I have tried to overclock this to 4.4-4.5 but for some reason it wouldn't stay. I don't know if this was a chip issue or a motherboard issue but I've been trying to go back to overclocking and just can't seem to find the right configuration
  • Pros: It's a CPU, it's fast, cool, does what it needs to do. I've gamed and mined with it and it just continues to work.
  • Cons: See other thoughts
